Just over a year ago...

Alex and I became the extremely grateful and proud parents of a beautiful little girl.  It has been an amazing year for us as a family with Holden and in other ways.  Alex was given a promotion at work, I started a new job that has been great, all in all 2010 was good to us.   As 2011 started and our little lady crossed the 1 year mark, I followed suit by hitting the 30 mark.  Wow, I know I am barely crossing what most would consider anything close to older, but I definitely feel like an adult and could not be happier.

I know everyone knows the song "Cats in the Cradle"; this last year almost feels a little like that, but instead of missing out on time with the family, we missed out on some time with the rest of the world.  Sorry for that and I will try and share a little more on here from our adventures in living.

Look forward to a montage of 1st Thanksgiving, 1st Christmas, 1st Birthday, and etc.

Talk soon,

Our little monkey

So, Grandma Dawn got Holden a little monkey costume for Halloween and we figured a trial run might be a good idea. Clearly I am biased but definitely the cutest monkey I have ever seen.
Thanks Grandma!

Loving new cold weather...

So, our little lady definitely good dad's love of hats.

Here she is in mine, and then here she is in one of hers, courtesy of Ms. Abbra Sharp who made this and a few more for her.

She is much cuter in hers.

Arts and crafts

One more post with the new mobility. This one is from a few weeks ago. While we have yet to actually cultivate a yard or much of a garden, Holden and I have made the first decoration.

Started with some wet concrete, then added foot.

And then let dry.

We will get better at projects together.

Sorry again...

So Holden and I have had a lot of time playing and have not made a lot of time for this, but since now there's "an app for that" we have no excuse. It's crazy that it's been 9 months already. She's rolling and scooting, eating solid foods, and has some little curls coming in. And I cannot even remember what life was like without her around...

Just a little swing time.

And the Bumbo

She is finally big and strong enough to sit in the Bumbo; 5 months old today and loving life already!

Man's Best Friend

Or maybe it should be Baby's Nervous Friend, if he only knew all the torture she will more than likely put him through.
